    Republicans complain about teachers and other union workers making way too much money.

    So I'm curious. What is a "skilled" worker to Republicans and what is an "unskilled" worker? I would love some examples.

    How much do Republicans think a "skilled" worker should be paid and should they get the same as what an "unskilled" worker gets?

    Since 90% of workers don't belong to a union, do Republicans feel those workers are being treated "fairly"?

    What I really want to know is how many Republicans on this board are unemployed and getting disability, Social Security, Medicare, Food Stamps and unemployment. But they would never tell the truth.

    How about letting the market sort out who deserves what kind of pay and benefits?
    Radical solution for a statist like you, but there is it.

    Whatever an employer can afford to pay
    that gives the owner a profit on his/her investment.
    I know the left hates the fact that the employer
    is trying to make a profit.

    Unfettered corporatism works this way.

    A. Get rid of the competition, either through mergers or outright elimination.
    B. Create an environment where there are very few places to work.
    C. Create an environment where there is a lot of people looking for the same job.
    D. Pay as little as possible.
    E. Take home as much profit as possible.
    F. Have government assume risk..privatize Profit.

    Let's answer it with a question...

    Which is better for the payroll bottom line, 3.8% unemployment or 8.3% unemployment?

    Don't you just HATE having to pay signing bonuses just to get the labor you need?

    10% UE rocks... ass-u-me-ing your buying labor in the market and not selling it!!

    As rdean is unable to understand a pro free market or pro-capitalist viewpoint and is unwilling to accept a link from a website that would make such an argument, here instead is a video of the Hulk fighting a grizzly bear:

    Enjoy.
